Well, It is obvious I've not held to my "Painting a Day" OR my "Blog a Week" goals....But in my defense, I have my father-in-law visiting from England and for an older gentleman, he really really really likes to be on the move at all times. It's great, but leaves little time for painting. HOWEVER, there was a major UEFA match on today which meant several hours of uninterrupted painting time. (That is a major football/soccer event for all of you NOT in the know)
On TheTroddenPath.Ning.Com site, there is a free group to join that encourages one to create what one can within 20 minutes. Whatever you do....set a timer...begin..."ding"...Stop. And what you have is what you have. It is freeing, it is Fun and it is stress free. I really enjoyed it and wondered why I did not begin sooner. I must admit, that by #5 things began to go downhill a little, but even THAT was a little insightful. Here are some of my results.

The only thing I want to add is my Wax Seal next to signature, but I'm unable to find my signet  stamp...So Maybe these will become my 21 minute paintings as soon as it turns up. R. Jones
